Jennifer Garner sure can poke fun at herself! The actress shared a playful throwback photo on Instagram on Tuesday in which she can be seen sporting facial hair and a strawberry blond wig. She hilariously captioned the shot, “New Year, New Me.”

Jennifer revealed that she underwent the transformation for a film in 2011, which she didn't end up starring in. The mother-of-three explained she didn't realize she was pregnant at the time and added: "#babiesarebetterthanmovies.” The Daredevil star would have been pregnant with her and ex-husband Ben Affleck’s youngest child – their son Sam – who was born in February 2012. The ex-couple also share two daughters: Violet, 12, and Seraphina, eight.

Jennifer and Ben announced their split in June 2015 in a joint statement that read: "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding." Their divorce was finalized in 2017.

A few months ago, Jennifer admitted that she is not ready to date again following her split. The doting mum told news.com.au: "I haven't been on a date and I am not interested in dating. People want to set me up and I am just like, 'No thank you!'" She continued: "I would not have chosen this life for myself or for my kids. I would not choose to be single or be in this position. It's something that we are working through."
